    It really depends on how much financial aid you get. I got FANTASTIC aid so I have no complaints but I also have friends paying full tuition (which is A LOT-then again, they are v wealthy).

    Books, books, and more books is my answer! You learn to read then read to learn, after all, so the more you consume of books the more knowledge you'll obtain! The Raven bookstore in downtown NoHo is great for those hungry for more book knowledge! Also, smith has free coffee in the global studies center!

    Great financial aid and the small class sizes mean more access to professors which helps make the quality of education better than larger universities.

    Smith is really really really expensive. It's hard to afford tuition without some kind of financial aid. But the academic quality makes it worthwhile as well as the opportunities that are available to you here such as the PRAXIS internship and Junior Year Abroad. The financial aid office will work with you if you make them.

    The US's college system is dysfunctional in itself, but Smith is very much so worth whatever you are willing to afford.
